So far, there is no doubt that fans have enjoyed the second season of Supergirl much more than the first, and the move to The CW was said to help it considerably. The debut of Superman was huge and the upcoming four-series mega crossover event is likely going to be even bigger. Now, there has been a reveal that something gigantic is coming. Something strong is about to arrive. The second season of Supergirl needs to prepare for the arrival of Cyborg Superman.
The worlds of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) are becoming more vast with each passing month whether it is in the comics, the movies, or on TV. Familiar faces are crossing over. New names are showing up unexpectedly. Now, a big-time villain is heading to take on Supergirl.
Screen Rant is reporting that Supergirl is really growing its universe with all of the different characters that are being brought into it. So far, fans have come across the aforementioned Superman, The Guardian, Mon-El, and Miss Martian.
But wait, there’s more.

The Supergirl episode airing on November 21 is titled “The Darkest Place,” and the rundown for it has been released and it’s extremely intriguing. It details some information about The Guardian as well as one of the most evil villains in all of DC Comics’ history — Cyborg Superman.
Here is the official synopsis for Supergirl‘s “The Darkest Place”:
“IT’S SUPERGIRL VS. CYBORG SUPERMAN — While Guardian (Mehcad Brooks) tries to clear his name after being accused of a murder committed by another vigilante, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) heads out on a solo mission to rescue Mon-El (Chris Wood) who has been captured by CADMUS. While fighting to free Mon-El, Supergirl comes face to face with Cyborg Superman. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Robert Rovner & Paula Yoo (#207). Original airdate 11/21/2016.”
Cyborg Superman first appeared back in the ’90s as the popular and controversial “Death of Superman” story emerged in DC Comics. After Doomsday killed the actual Man of Steel, three beings made their presence known by claiming to be the real Superman come back to life.
In time, Cyborg Superman was exposed as Hank Henshaw who set out to ruin the eternal story of Superman and all that the hero had accomplished. Oh yeah, Hank Henshaw was also a cybernetic creation and one master villain with evil intentions.
Comic Book Movie reported that many people believed David Harewood would end up becoming Cyborg Superman due to his eyes glowing red. That has turned out to be inaccurate as Harewood came forth as Martian Manhunter.
Tyler Hoechlin could come back to play the role of Cyborg Superman, but it appears as if another actor will likely be brought in. CADMUS has a lot of control over a lot of people (and beings of all kinds), and maybe Cyborg Superman will be a returning villain to cause havoc and destruction for Supergirl.
Den of Geek also made sure to point out something very interesting in the synopsis for the episode, and it’s the part that makes mention of “another vigilante.” With Cyborg Superman being name-dropped at the end, who is this with which The Guardian is having issues?
The CW has really done wonders with the second season of Supergirl despite having less of a budget than the show did with CBS. Superman’s arrival was met well and fans are loving all that has been going on with the series. Now, the arrival of Cyborg Superman is going to turn things up a number of notches and bring a whole new level of villain face-to-face with the heroine.
